AI economy
How do you build an economy where most of us don't have to work to keep it running? 

I always find questions and goals like this so amusing. Americans have been writing and talking about this for decades. We're still trying to get a good part of the population employed, not unemployed. We're so behind, I don't think this is work discussing anymore.

Re: AI
It is a valid assumption -- there are things that are known, known unknowns and unknown unknowns. If FLI finds that AI is a real and present threat, how is it going to be stopped? Because, if I recall correctly, private investment in AI has crossed aggregate government investment in AI and for good reason as AI has started to deliver a lot of business and economic value.

Re: AI
I just hope they do not start bringing fictional scenarios for these grants.  If you are running a simulation there could be some many scenarios that one can go with AI.  I would like to know whether such scenarios would even had the chance to go from the lab to the real world.  I would like to see more practical studies on AI, such as decision support system on hospitals, improving AI on autonomous cars.

That's quite some progress: from known knowns to known unknowns to unknown unknowns!
